The Journey - Poem by John Calvin Cochrane

The Journey

From a shore parted
upon birth in a
journey into
depths of life
into a toiling sea
of uncertainty.

Cast amongst distant
lands.
Far away shores,
promising horizons,
past open doors.

Adrift;
times of storm
and despair.
Ripped from anchor,
tossed unaware.

Brought back?
A calm
after the storm.
back home,
where I once was
born?

Taking on
waves
grace has
pulled me from
peril and
steadied my
course

Now in a place of
beauty and love
that exists in me,
no matter how
deep or rough
my trip upon the sea.

For in her
love
I have found
my shore and my
everything.

John Cochrane
